Here’s the break down by numerical order:
1. MAC Mineralized Skin Finish in ‘Oh Darling’
What is it & why?
It’s basically a fancy name for a bomb ass cult favorite highlighter. I swear, I’m almost always late on the hype (I try not to be super trendy with my purchases, makeup included) but once I tried this product I understood why it was limited edition & sold out every single time! It’s the most beautiful & perfect golden toned champagne highlight, that can complement every skin tone. The texture is smooth, not chalky, easy to apply, & even more gorgeous amplified with any setting spray. If you want to glow hard this summer, you need this!
2. GlamGlow ‘GlowSetter’ Makeup Setting Spray
What is it & why?
It’s a facial makeup setting spray designed to give you long-lasting, healthy, glow, dewy looking makeup. As a oily-combo skin type, I was immediately convinced this wasn’t a product for me, anything ‘dewy’ is always on the least of my ‘to try’ list because of my fear of shine, sheen, & oily-ness! But much to my surprise, I love this setting spray! After all the powder I use to matiffy my face, this seals in the powders, and gives me a healthy looking glow, without making me look too dewy or oily. It’s literally the perfect makeup setting spray for anyone, & the smell is to die for! It’s a bit pricey, but worth every glow giving penny. keep this in your purse or beach bag this summer for the perfect refreshing touch up.
3. Charlotte Tilbury ‘Unisex Healthy Glow’
What is it & why?
It’s Charlotte’s new unisex tinted bronzing moisturizer! It’s literally the most beautiful bronze/shimmering moistureizer out right now. It’s for the face, but can also be used on the body, while being created for women or men. It’s beautiful on its own for a ‘no makeup’ makeup look with some mascara & brow gel, or play up your bb cream or foundation routine but mixing this in or under your application for an extra glowy & bronzey summer makeup look.
4. Arcona Cranberry Toner Pads
What is it & why?
These are toning pads designed to remove excess dirt, oil, and makeup off the face. I love Arcona because it’s an all natural ‘farm to face’ makeup brand. This toner works well with all skin types & it’s one of my favorite toners of all time. I love that it comes in pad forms which makes them convenient for travel or carrying with you throughout a hot summer day. Use these to cleanse & refresh your bare face through out the day, or do to do after makeup removal & cleansing. The smell is amazing & youll be feeling fres & squeaky clean.
5. Arcona Mineral Powder Sunscreen
What is it & why?
Another favorite product of mine, which I love the technology behind. It’s a mineral powder form of sunscreen. All my oily-combo babes will appreciate this! I personally hate the tacky & stickiness that a liquid SPF will give to my face, I can just feel my makeup sliding all around & off at the thought of it. This is perfect for using with no makeup, applying over your makeup, or even touching up with throughout the day. It has an SPF 30 that contains Zinc & titanium (some of the best & most important types of sun protection to always look for) & they also do the powder in various shades, or my personal favorite translucent. It’s the perfect way to stay protected, matte, & touched up through out the summer.
6. Charlotte Tilbury ‘Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder’
What is it & why?
The perfect everyday touch up powder for all skin types! Stay flawless all summer & set with this powder. I love it because unlike other powders that start to layer with touch up & cake over time, this powder just absorbs all types of oil, sheen, or shine on the face without any signs of cakiness. It’s the finest powder on the market, its got the feel of a translucent, with a slight tint. The shade tints are so light the powder only comes in 3 shades because it’s so universal. I’m a shade #2 in this powder & I carry it with me everywhere! Not to mention, Charlotte’s packaging never disappoints!
7. Fresh ‘Sugar Lip Treatment Wand’
What is it & why?
My favorite lip product by Fresh & the only lip treatment guaranteed to give me chap & dry free lips! This is my favorite lip product to apply when beginning my makeup to prep for lip product application later. It’s perfect for a mascara, big hoops, & glossy lip look. It look’s like a gloss but is actually a sticky free oil formula that has the most beautiful golden flecks in it! You can’t beat the price at $24 & it lasts me such a long time. This is a year round must have for me.
8. Lancome Dual Finish Highlighter
What is it & why?
Let me say, I have never tried a Lancome product until this one & it completely rocked my world. This highlighter collection is absolutely stunning, every single one of them! My personal favorite is #05, but they all are such a gorgeous champagne, golden, or rose gold feel. If you want to beam with 24k golden cheek bones & cupid bow this summer, you need this product! It’s highly pigmented, creamy, & well worth the price point.
9. First Aid Beauty ‘Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask’
What is it & why?
A hydrating oatmeal mask designed for all skin times to nourish sensitive, acne prone, dry, or combination skin. This is one of my favorite masks when my skin is being hard to tame & very inflamed, it calms my skin immediately & takes away redness from acne of dehydration. It smell’s like bliss & is so gentle on the skin while giving deep hydration. Don’t let you skin dry out this hot summer & treat it to this mask a few times a week for 10min & rinse with warm water!
10. MoroccanOil Hair Oil
What is it & why?
A heat protector and anti frizz hair oil that’s light weight for all hair types & smells so good. A little goes a long way with this product. Protect your hair from the heat this summer with this oil, I like to apply when my hair is damp out of the shower, as well as on dry hair before & after styling with hot tools. I take the smallest amount between two hands, rub together warm, & distribute ears down to the ends of my hair, I avoid applying at my roots to prevent an oily looking scalp.
